Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps is a 3rd person persistent online mech game set in the Dark Horizons Universe. Successor to the 2004 game Dark Horizons: Lore and the 2009 game Lore: Aftermath, Mechanized Corps takes the best of both its predecessors and creates a whole new level of mech action and community.


The mech

Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps has evolved into massive mechs that no longer are piloted remotely, but now house a new breed of warrior in the cockpit. Ranging from 25 to 80 tons and walking mayhem, mechs can be configured with a variety of weapons and ordinance to accomplish its mission goals.

Customization

You have several way to customize your mech including:

  • Chassis selection
  • Custom Paint Schemes
  • Paint color selection
  • Variety of weapons
  • Equip such as jump jets, mine deployer, etc..
  • Ability to increase armor value

Faction Wars

In Mechanized Corps we are bringing back our critically acclaimed Faction Wars system that made our 2005 IGF finalist game Lore - Invasion so endearing to thousands of players.

What is Factions Wars?
Faction Wars provides the backbone for our persistent online universe that allows players to work together in full on Player vs Players to fight for control of the game verse. Each battle while playing in Factions Wars counts toward the winning of sectors on the game verse map, which give player faction bonuses like:

  • Overall world control
  • In-game currency bonuses
  • Additional Battle Salvage
  • Bonus XP

Using our COMCENT interface players will be able to see whats going on in the game verse in real time. COMCENT features include:

  • Live game verse map showing the latest hot spots.
  • Live game reporting
  • Ability for players to join factions
  • Players can create or join player units which can be faction based or mercenary.
  • View the pilot statistics (Achievements, Kills, Battles won, etc...)
  • Recruit other players
  • Faction unit leaders can create mercenary contracts
  • and more to come....

Other Features

Faction Wars is one of the main features of the game and encompasses a lot, but here are a few of the other features Mechanized Corps supports.

  • Gameplay modes: Arena, Annihilation, Siege, Mini-Nuke, Search & Destroy
  • Up to 32 players per Faction wars mission (when hosted by a dedicated server), maximum 8-16 recommended for player hosted games.
  • Complete mech customization via the theLab
  • Equip special items such as Mines, Turrets and Counter Measures that you can deploy in the game world.
  • Multitude of mission types including: Attrition, Mini-Nuke, Raids, Siege
  • Variety of game inputs to control the game with either the standard keyboard & mouse, or utilize a Joystick or a Xbox 360 game pad to play.
  • MOD Features including: Mission Creation, custom skins and unit ensignias
  • Planned support for Windows, Mac and Linux (Window release first)

Version alpha 2.0.5.2

And I suppose you're the one that downvoted everything here?

Do your homework before commenting- the original (I believe) DH game was from 2005. That puts it on par with MW4, if that's what you're comparing to.

DH is more like Unreal Tournament, than MW, so yes, I think it IS original.

Working on a bunch of new video and screenshots in the latest engine. We have spent alot of time upgrade to the latest version of Torque 3D MIT v 3.5. This has allowed us to really map some massive terrains that are really pretty.

We also have been hard at work with another Torque community member to finish the linux and Mac ports which we are wrapping up this week.
